EMB #218: Tics and Lyme Disease

Today we have another brand new topic and new guest as I interview Dr. Rebecca Risk on Lyme Disease. This is a topic I haven’t heard much about and as you’ll hear Dr. Rebecca mention, it’s only just starting to become a topic the general public knows about. She’ll tell you about her story, how she dealt with Lyme herself for 14 years, which why she is in the position she is today, in helping others improve their health.
